IGG boosting youth mental health

Irish Girl Guides (IGG) helps boost the mental health of girls and young women from age five to 30 through its Healthy Mind programme.

In this video some of our youth members talk about the activities they did to earn their Healthy Mind badge. Also, how doing these activities helped boost their mental health and helped them cope with challenges in their lives, like living through the Covid-19 pandemic.

We are grateful to the ESB Energy for Generations Fund, which has given us a grant to boost the rollout of our Healthy Mind programme.

The grant is going towards the upskilling of volunteer Leaders to deliver the Healthy Mind programme and to sponsoring 3,000 Healthy Mind badges for our youth members. It also enabled us to bring out a special Healthy Minds edition of our magazine Trefoil News.
